Rated 4 out of 5 by Thisismynickname Big Improvement
Before I begin, I would first like to point out and highly recommend everyone to listen to these headphones with your music encoded in LOSSLESS format ripped from ORIGINAL SOURCE CD's. Whether it be, WAV, AIFF, FLAC or Apple Lossless, it will deliver pure audio without loss of quality. Mp3 on the other hand whether it be 120kbps, 256kbps or 320kbps is compressed audio and will result to loss of quality in your music. Same goes for music download and a factor why most people who review these headphones commonly say "Beats sound bad". When played back from and iPod, set the EQ to OFF and Sound Check set to ON.
Now for the Review. I knew there was gonna be a new version as I mentioned in my first review of the first Studio headphones. These cans are look great. Internal battery with LED life indicator is a great idea, love the mute button, great comfort, noise cancellation has improved. I like the fact that there's an Adaptive Noise Cancel feature as well and Beats sticker included. Sound quality of these corrects what the first version of the Studio headphone delivered. Now with the bass toned down and the muddiness of it removed, exceptional mids and crisp highs, the sound now is opened up. My nit-picks are I wish the print on the top of the headband would read "beats by dr. dre" like the first Studio headphones instead of just "beats". Having it in piano black may be a fingerprint magnet but that's to be expected and is ok with me since black is my favorite color anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cgxghost Black ones look sick
The first pair I purchased (RED) had a fault but I gave them a second chance and purchased a black pair, and I must say the black ones look seriously good. Sound quality is the best from beats that I've heard, bass is now not overpowering, hi and mids sound so clear,love the comfort on these as well, only problem I have is the fingerprints on the black ones but hey that's what the cleaning cloth is for, no sound leak either which is a great improvement over the old studios, overall if you want a pair of beats I would go for these or the wireless they are the best for comfort,

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeatsAreAddictive Great designand sound quality
This product is great for music and the quality is phenomenal. The only problem I had is that is took beats over 2 weeks to ship!!!!!!!!!! I was mad about that but I was glad when I finally got them. Beats did a fantastic job on these headphones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Riley6140 Slight problem when I unboxed :(
When I unboxed my new beats, I found that when I plug in the audio cable (which now is how you turn off and on the beats) they started to make a buzzing sound. Not loud, you can only hear it when you have them on, at first I thought it might have been a problem with the audio cable, but it comes with two, and it is happening with both plugged in. I thought it might have been the "noise cancelation" but when I turned on the noise cancelation without the audio cable plugged in, I couldn't hear it. Is anyone else having this problem? What should I do?
On the other hand, they look sick, and sound great! I still recommend buying them, I'm sure mine are just faulty :/

Rated 4 out of 5 by (insertnicknamehere) Excellent headphones
The first thing I noticed when I took them out of the box was how much lighter they are than the original studios, which is great. The sound quality is still just as great, if not, better than the originals. The bass isn't as loud (sorry EDM lovers), but it does provide a much cleaner sound. The sound is much more balanced. The only downside is the durability. They feel like they could break very easily. But other than that, no complaints. Great headphones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kev Noticeable improvements
With a new chic design, Beats once again lives up to its reputation via noticeable improvement on its sound quality, durability, and little attention to details.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DonaldTrump Good but some problems
I got them a while ago and love them. The battery lasts for a long time and they sound great. These are my first beats and the bass was less then i expected but still good. In the first week my right ear cup stopped working for 5 min but then it was fine. I love the design they look much better than the old ones. Definitely something I would recommend buying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mano Lots of improvements, didn't do much about the leaking though
i have both studios. they've improved the quality of the product, added this built-in chargeable batteries. much much more comfortable (thats why i bought those new ones), doesn't heat like the old ones. 4/5 just because they didn't do ANYTHING about the sound leakage which really bothers me when i listen to music as i hate disturbing my surroundings
